If you use Gimp then I would advise you to try Krita once. This software is very similar to Photoshop. Similar to photoshop, In Krita Non Destructive Image Editing can be done to some extent. I sometimes find it better than Gimp. Do try it once. Its AppImage file is also available which you can execute by just double clicking. Krita is also available at Ubuntu’s software center. Krita is a Cross Platform Open Source Software. It is also available for Windows.

Download Krita


If you have used PHPMyAdmin and MySql Workbench for MySql database management, then you should try dBeaver once. The most important thing about dBeaver is that it allows you to manage not only MySql database but also many other databases like MS Access, Orache, IBM DB2. I use it to open MS Access files in Linux and to manage MySql databases. The backup feature given in this is excellent. dBeaver is a Cross Platform open source software. It is available for Linux, Mac OS and Windows.

Kazam Screen Recording Software

If you want to make video tutorials then you must try Kazam. This is my favorite software for screen recording. Its recorded video files are smaller in size. But the video quality is excellent. In Kazam you can also choose the size of the area to be captured. It can record in MP4, AVI, WEBM file formats.
